The Hobbit and FOTR Extended. Can't Post

I decided to watch the beginning of the FOTR EE, and I realized that Bilbo doesn't have a clue as to where Frodo has gone, and was expecting him to answer the constant knocks on the door. However, in the Hobbit, Frodo clearly tells Bilbo where he is going. Bilbo even acknowledges that Gandalf will likely show up for his party, yet when he appears in FOTR, Bilbo acts as if he had no idea about it. The latter is pretty minor though. Bilbo acting surprised was, to me, a good moment in the film.

I find this a bit odd though. Is it because Peter Jackson doesn't follow the EE? Does he instead film with only the theatrical edition in mind?
